Leader Rules Out Both Talks, War With US Leader Rules Out Both Talks, War With US

Leader of Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei said no war is expected between Iran and the United States, stressing that the Islamic Republic would not negotiate with Washington either. 
"We do not seek war in the first place and they know a war is not in their interests," he said, addressing a group of state officials in Tehran on Tuesday, the Leader’s website reported. 
The US last year walked away from Iran's 2015 nuclear deal on the grounds that it did not include non-nuclear issues such as Iran’s defense and regional policies. 
It has been ratcheting up economic and military pressure against Tehran to force it to renegotiate a new deal.
